Average Commute Times in the U.S.

Average commute time in Los Angeles

A glance alone at this data visualization project is enough to elicit a jaw-dropping “wow”. Based on public data from the 2006-2011 U.S. Census American Community Survey, the interactive map gives you average commute times for every zip code in the United States. My home, the greater Los Angeles area, is bad, of course, but less urban centers in the¬†Midwest, like northeast Arizona and northwest New Mexico, have average commute times of up to an hour!
